Inscription. French:
En 1992, le jésuite Michel Boisvert (1944-2006) fonde ici la Maison Dauphine, qui offre un accueil inconditionnel aux jeunes de la rue en leur assurant protection, aide et soutien.

C’est pendant qu’il exerce son ministère au Centre de spiritualité Manrèse que le père Boisvert, appuyé d’un groupe de laïcs, jette les bases de Oeuvres de la Maison Dauphine. Homme de grande écoute et d’action, visionnaire, il développe un fil de ans, avec ses partenaires, une gamme de services et de programmes visant la réhabilitation sociale des jeunes de la rue. Ainsi naît l’École de la rue, sans doute la plus connue de Oeuvres.

Devenues une référence en matière d’aide aux jeunes, le Oeuvres de la Maison Dauphine, aujourd’hui rue D’Auteuil, poursuivent la mission de leur fondateur.
